Bracelets may be rigid or slinky, adorning your wrist and adding a splash of colour to your gestures. When storing your bracelets, you don't need to leave them in a messy jumble or tucked away in velvet jewellery bags. Make a bracelet stand from a tree branch to display your favourite bracelets when you are not wearing them.

Pick up a fallen branch with wide spreading twigs from your yard. Choose branches that are sturdy and dry.
Remove the bark from the branch using a utility knife.
Remove any protruding twigs. You will be hanging your bracelets from the branches, so clip away any branches that are too small.
Spray paint the branch to protect it. Use a white spray paint for a strong, bright contrast to your room, or use black or brown for a more conservative choice.
Allow the branch to dry, and add another coat of paint if necessary.
Cut a piece of floral foam that will fit snugly into a flower pot.
Stick the floral foam into the flower pot, wedging it in so that it does not budge.
Push the blunt end of the branch into the floral foam, pressing it down until the floral foam holds the branch erect.
Drape the base of the branch with a scrap of velvet fabric, hiding the floral foam. Hang your bracelets from the branches.
Tips and warnings
- Avoid using branches that have too many small twigs or that have thorns.
- Take the branch outside before spray painting to reduce the mess.
